The Fine Line We Walk.

This week I’ve been reading a lot of bloggers who are saying that the blog world can get to be too much.  And I agree.  I’ve seen a lot of great bloggers get swept away with giveaways and product reviews until I no longer am interested in reading their blog because it’s just about stuff.   It’s just about getting more followers and sponsors.

A quick glance to my followers section shows that this is not the case for me.  And I think:  Why don’t I have more followers?  What can I do to make people like me more?  What can I post here that will make people want to read? Why does everyone else have more followers than me?

Well, I’m asking the wrong question.  If I change my content to get more followers, I’m no longer an honest blogger.  Yes, I do want followers.  Because despite some of the bad aspects, I love the blogging community and there are so many sweet bloggers out there I’d love to get to know more.  I’d like to think that I have something to share that others will care about.  But even if I never get another follower, I want to keep blogging true to myself and my faith.  So thank you to all who have shown me some blog love.  And to all those awesome bloggers that share real stuff every day… you gals are the best!  Keep doing what you’re doing! 

Joyfully yours,

  2. I'll follow you... found you by looking around at blogs I read (it's what I do...) :) I also want followers, but not at the expense of what I feel called to write and say, :) My first visit... I actually have read about 10 posts...
